    • Abstract:
      The article discusses the creation of a so-called Physical Internet, which would move goods the same way that digital data is moved on the Internet, by several researchers including industrial engineer Benoit Montreuil at Laval University in Quebec City, Canada. Topics include the Physical Internet's use to promote collaboration within the supply chain, which includes developing standardized containers, and the de-emphasis of logistics by many shipping companies such as DHL Express.
